Saint Story Tellers for All Saints Day Mass - Nov. 1
New this year for All Saints Day Mass - We are looking for one student per grade 5-11 to pick a saint and announce five facts about their chosen saint at the 7:00 PM All Saints Day Mass on November 1. Please contact the FF office if your son or daughter is interested and please let us know what saint they would like to announce so we do not have duplicate saints. Kayla will practice with them on October 25during classes. Example format: I am St. Patrick. My feast day is March 17, and I am the patron saint of Ireland. I was captured by Irish pirates during a raiding party and was taken to Ireland to be a slave to herd and tend sheep. After my captivity, I entered the priesthood because of a vision I received. I used a shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity.
Wanted: Students in Graded 9-12 for the Youth Committee
